The Science of Interstellar and How It Can Be Applied to Run Buildings Better
Benjamin's presentation takes us on a journey through the buildings universe, starting with a comparison of where we are in the digital world today compared to typical buildings (hint: buildings are way behind the curve). However the future is bright as buildings are being digitized at an amazing pace. And by applying cutting edge data science approaches we can glean surprising insights into how buildings operate and can be made more efficient. The presentation highlights a number of case studies and demonstrates hands-on the benefits from combining operational monitoring of assets with advanced analytics to ultimately enhance asset value and occupant wellbeing.
